Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Some of you know us, Lynn and Carolyn, from either our magazine writings or Lynn broadcasting for many years on Christian radio.

We’ve both retired from those roles and decided to write more frequently, sharing our writings with you. We write devotions each week and share other ideas and thoughts along the way. We want to make this a cozy spot on the web where we all share something new, a recipe or garden tip, not just us, but all of us, helping one another.

We hope you enjoy the devotions and insights we want to share each week, daily, or when the urge strikes. We think you are like us. No matter your age, we all want to learn and grow. We hope to do this by sharing our blog space wisdom gained from living. 

Writing has changed us. Now, we enjoy writing just when we have a tug at the heart, something we feel strongly about. That's when we do our best writing.

Come join us for a cup of coffee or tea. Let's have fun learning and helping one another whatever the topic is for the week or day.

Our blog is linked to our Facebook page where communications can continue about something we want to discuss in more detail. Hope you enjoy our new space!
